About the Indian Bull Riders Club
The Indian Bull Riders Motorcycle Club (IBRMC) is the largest motorbike community for Royal Enfield riders. The members meet once or twice a week to engage in different events that include social responsibility and of course long motorbike trips.
IBRMC has its branches in Jaipur, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Pune, with three locations (or chapters) in Thrissur, Guwahati, and Kolkata under probation. The branches are called ‘Chapters’ and they act as the local hub for the members in that particular city. Each Chapter is free to arrange their own events, and activities, led by a Chapter Head. The head has extensive administrative duties that include organizing events and making sure members abide by the club rules.
When was IBMRC founded and by whom?
The Indian Bull Riders Club is a decade old club which was first founded in November 2007, as the Delhi Bull Riders Club (DBRC). It mainly targeted Royal Enfield enthusiasts residing in and around Delhi. However, as time passed, the membership was expanded well beyond the Dehli/NCR boundaries. Hence, in June 2010 it was renamed as the Indian Bull Riders Club, to better reflect its membership.
Sajeesh Nair is the founding member of the Indian Bull Riders Club alongside fellow founding members Robbie Ghosh and Gaurav Kumar. IBRMC currently, has more than 2000 members spread across the different chapters (one chapter is based in a city).
